I Tried To Visit the Neon Museum…

But the damn place doesn’t open until three PM which is ridiculous. I visited the museum about two years ago when the hours were normal so I made the assumption that it would be open when I got there before noon. So ridiculous. I don’t go anywhere at night as a rule but some night photos would be very nice. I can’t use my Nikon for the photos because a few years ago, some European tourists took some photos, took them back to their country, and published them in a large magazine or something like that. Hence, I and everyone else must pay for the sins of these Europeans. So nice, isn’t it? So, I grabbed some photos along the way through downtown Las Vegas, passing the very nice Fremont Street along the way. Thanks for nothing, Neon Museum!

  1. OK, I’ll bite: European tourists published photos in some kind of magazine in Europe, that they had taken with a Nikon. Now you and other Nikon owners are “paying for that sin”? Help me out, John, what is going on…

    • Just what I said. I was told in person a couple years ago that Europeans too high res photos of the signs and took them back to Europe and published them. Why the museum cares is beyond me but the whole think is a crock of chit. To heck with the museum! Maybe it was a Canon but it doesn’t matter…

      • Oh, I get that now. I didn’t realize the issue was photos of the museum displays. The way I read your post I thought somehow the issue was with the Nikon, which I couldn’t figure. Did not realize your issue was the no pictures thing. If the Europeans used the photos for commercial use and made money without source information, I can see why the museum felt ripped off.

        • I’m sorry that I wasn’t clear about this, oops. I frankly don’t care about what happened. These people running the museum are apparently unaware that phones today including my iPhone 12 can take very sharp, clean and crispy images.

          If they are upwards of 20mb, they can actually be printed but there are many photos on this blog that are from the phone and nobody seems to notice.

Your pleasant comment is welcome!
